My students need yoga balls, camping chairs, and bouncy bands for flexible seating!
I teach a variety of 5th graders! I spend my morning teaching English Language Arts to two different ability groups of students. In the afternoon, I teach Science, Social Studies, and Health to a mixed ability group of students.
My students are from a variety of backgrounds which make them all unique.
Due to my school's location in Jefferson County West Virginia, my classroom has students from all over the economic and cultural spectrum. Every day is a new adventure with these awesome students.
My students have seen other classrooms that use flexible seating and asked if we could try it in our classroom. After doing some research, I am all in!
After spending some time in class talking about flexible seating, my students started doing research of their own.
The yoga balls, bouncy bands, camping chairs, and clipboards I am requesting are all items my students asked to be incorporated into our seating options.
Flexible seating will benefit my students in many ways. I work with several students throughout the day that struggle with attention and focus disorders. From the research I have done, flexible seating is one way I can accommodate these students.
In addition, allowing my students various options of where and how they sit will promote my students to take ownership of their work and create a better sense of community in my classroom.
